In July, ELNET hosted in Israel a first-of-its-kind diverse delegation of French and German journalists from a variety of European media outlets.
Jerusalem Post interviewed largest-ever French parliamentary delegation, which visited Israel with ELNET. The delegation spans the political spectrum in France, and for most people this is their first trip to Israel.
The purpose of the visit, organized by ELNET France and led by the President of the Conference of Imams of France Hassan Chalghoumi, was to provide the delegation with a better understanding of Israel and to foster inter religious dialogue.
Effective from June 1, Matthijs Schüssler was appointed as new Executive Director of ELNET-EU & NATO.
Former U.S. Senator Mark Kirk, who serves as the Chairman of the Friends of ELNET Advisory Committee, explains in Times of Israel why the bonds between Europe and Israel are critical to Israeli and Jewish security.
